Take your average module mark from the second year and divide it by 100. Multiply it by 25.
Do the same for your average third year module mark but multiply it by 75 instead.

This is on the assumption that all modules are equal, of course. I'd advise you to get in touch with your university as it can vary. Your dissertation (if you're going one) may have extra weighting so get someone from uni to explain it.

You've managed to complete a degree without a rudimentary understanding of percentages?!

But seriously, your university will have its own methods of calculating the overall grade. Different modules will have different credit weightings within each year, and there may be a form of paper weighting if you're borderline after the numerical average.

my uni is crap and they dont tell us anything. so all my modules are equal. also when calculating do i round up in between calculations or round it off just in the end.

At the end, normally. But it does depend again on your university - at some, a 59.6 is a 2.2 and at others a 2.1.

Ask them Some do round up, especially when mitigating circumstances are involved. I don't know if Birmingham do or not.

hmm, damn mitigating circumstances, birmingham have hardly been very helpful with my mitigating circumstances, they rejected all of them and now theyve gone to appeal, i just wondered about the rounding up thing because im going to be so close on the edge of a 2.1, every little percent will count
